Après-Ski in Steamboat
Steamboat is an old Western town that knows how to have a good time, and aims to keep everyone happy, and coming back! Guests typically stay either in the old town, or in the mountain village. They are 3 miles apart, and linked by a regular free shuttle. If you are staying in the mountain village, a trip to check out downtown is a ‘must-do' during your holiday. Great après-ski is not hard to find in Steamboat, but the best post-ski après is to be found up in the mountain village. We suggest you start your evening here, and then head downtown for dinner:
This is a busy slopeside local's bar in the old Ski Patrol hut at the base of the mountain. It offers great food and drinks for lunch and après, has a fun local vibe and as you might expect, gets busy on sunny days. This is Steamboat’s best après spot in your ski boots without a doubt!
Slopeside Bar & Grill
Just off the mountain and still in ski boots, ski-in/stumble out. Lively slopeside bar offering American Classic food and great drinks with frequent live music.
New for May 2023 in Steamboat Square next to the Gondola(s) and ice-rink you’ll find The Range – two levels, each with its own full bar plus four dining venues with QR code ordering. Shiny and new and very different from the T-Bar and Slopeside Bar.
Storm Peak Bus Stop
Ski mountain location of Storm Peak Brewery: grab a burger from Après Burger upstairs to accompany your tasty beer offerings – try an Urban Sombrero, a Mexican-style lager with a hint of lime, or a Hop Mess Express, juicy and slightly hazy pale ale.
Slopeside wine, cocktails and comfort food après snacks at the back of One Steamboat Place just beside the main Gondola. Has a mean happy hour which is more like 90 minutes, serving local craft brews, olives, charcuterie board, street tacos and papas bravas.
